My first macro, A99 w/ minolta 50mm RS

Ok I lied the last post wasn't the last of "my first", but this will be last (probably lol).

So I finally got this lens (used) today and was in better cosmetic condition than I expected on first look (for once the actual thing looked better than it did on pictures!)

So I decided to take test shots (shared below), used the flash on my phone and a box to prop it up lol. Tripod for the long exposure (didn't realise how shaky my flooring is till today). Every time I focused and stepped back a bit the camera would move up ruining my focussing (may be I need to lose some weight!).

I will go get real world pictures at the weekend.

Not my ring and I am single (just wanted to clear that up )

Real diamond or not? Go on take a guess... (I had nothing to do with the purchase of this either)
